Policy on Incorrect Uniform

We encourage all our pupils to act independently and take responsibility for themselves.  If pupils have an issue with their uniform they must go to Upper Reception before the start of school to rectify it.  In the case of broken shoes, pupils must bring a note from home and collect pumps from Upper Reception before the start of school.  Failure to do this will result in a uniform detention.


Socks/tights - these can be flesh coloured, black or grey. No patterned or lacy tights or socks please. Short white, black or grey socks in the Summer months are acceptable. Leggings are not permitted.

Headscarves - should be black only.

Coats & Jackets - need to be smart and practical. They should be plain with no writing or large logos. Hooded tops, tracksuit tops or branded tops are NOT allowed and will be confiscated. Jackets with leather or denim are not allowed.

Jewellery - we allow one plain stud in each ear and one small stud in the nose. Nose rings are not permitted. All piercings must be removed for PE. We suggest any new piercings are done at the start of the Summer holidays. Girls can also wear one discreet ring and a watch.

Nails, Make Up & Hair - nails should look natural. False nails are not allowed. All other types of nail polish will be removed. Make up and hair colour should be natural.
